Continued trimming the baulk walls with baulk hammers and trowels.  Two finds turned up during this process: a bronze lump ( Find #1 ) and a piece of shell ( find #2 ).  After completing the baulks, the floor was levelled and studied.  There was a definite change in the soil consistency and composition.  The new soil is a darker brown, clumpier and contains a very high concentration of architectural terracotta compared with Locus 2 .  It was decided to close Locus 2 and designate this new soil layer Locus 3 .  Closing elevations for Locus 2 / Opening elevations for Locus 3 are:

52S, 182E = 27.41 m.

52S, 180E = 27.51 m.

49S, 182E = 27.41 m.

49S, 180E = 27.41 m.


Completed 1 full pick pass of trench.  After levelling the floor, we took closing elevations, which are:

52S, 182E = 27.37 m.

52S, 180E = 27.42 m.

49S, 182E = 27.33 m.

49S, 180E = 27.39 m.

10 cassettas of tile was unearthed as well as 1/4 latte box of pottery from the baulk trim and 3 latte boxes of pottery from Locus 3 .  There was also one wheelbarrow discovery at the end of the day, a carved stone ( Find #3 ).
